MTP Council updated recommendations on gene expression analysis for decision-making on the adjuvant breast cancer treatment
In late January 2022, Swedish Medical Technologies Product (MTP) Council issued an updated version of recommendations regarding gene expression analysis for decision-making on the adjuvant breast cancer treatment, initially published in November 2021. The recommendation to the regions remains the same:
- Prosigna can be used before the decision on adjuvant chemotherapy in women with breast cancer when there is uncertainty about the benefit of treatment;
- OncotypeDX can be used before the decision on adjuvant chemotherapy in women with breast cancer when there is uncertainty about the benefit of treatment provided that handling of personal data can take place in accordance with current Swedish and EU legislation;
- Currently, refrain from using the EndoPredict and MammaPrint due to lack of requested documentation.
The changes were only concerned with the clarification of some facts.
